Presentation

Once our eyes are closed, we switch to the other side of wakefulness, we delve into the contents of a lifetime: a toy chest; a biology class cupboard; the windows of an antique shop, of a collector’s den, of a grandmother’s flat, full of knick-knacks, a souvenir shop; a storage container; a larder; a jewellery box; boxes piled up in an empty house… What we retrieve from our night museums is fragmented, merged and recomposed by our minds. These reconstructed treasures are the décor and the protagonists of our dreams and nightmares.

Magali Lambert may resemble us but she loots with her eyes open. She assembles our dreams in broad daylight. Exiled in consciousness, she weaves our fantasies. She sifts through the junk shops, the flea markets, the streets, the forgotten drawers, keeps what we have discarded, what life has left behind but time has preserved, what could have been disposed of for good but was saved from the landfill by its very insignificance. From these impoverished materials, both natural and man-made, from the obsolete, the baroque, the damaged, she extracts artefacts, eerily familiar machines that ignite our imagination and leave us feeling disconcerted, for we have encountered in real life what is only activated in dreams.
